    Summary

    Possible Impossible takes place following the first raid and accompanying quest storyline for the Crystal Tower series. This story deviates from the established timeline of the Crystal Collection to delve into G’raha Tia’s fated first encounters with Raphail Somnalune, the Warrior of Light. This is planned to be the first story of several, focusing on the slow build of their relationship from “just friends” into something extraordinary that will alter both of their lives forever.

    G’raha Tia does not pout — or so he insists, to anyone who will listen. And yet, he finds himself doing exactly that beside the campfire one lonely evening, his wounded pride still aching in the wake of Cid’s objection to his plan: to venture into the Tower alongside the legendary Warrior of Light. But when a mysterious voice upon the wind assaults his senses during his nighttime watch, he discovers that ancient Allagan towers are not the only things on Raphail’s mind.

    Summary

    Ode to a Thousand Years takes place just prior to the events of patch 5.4 that start the ball rolling toward Endwalker. The story focuses on a quiet, tender moment of reflection as Scion G’raha Tia considers everything that has come before, and everything that he hopes to find in his new future with Raphail Somnalune, his beloved husband and Warrior of Light.

    G’raha Tia. The Crystal Exarch. Scion. All are names that one man has worn, though his face, body, and mind have not always matched. One thing, however, has always remained: an eternal fascination with the violet-haired hero that has saved countless worlds from utter ruin. No matter how hard G’raha tries, being back in the Source — in said hero’s arms, wearing his ring as proof — seems like a dream too good to be true. But as Raphail sleeps beside him, all he can think about in this moment is taking proper advantage of his new, boundless reality.

    Summary

    Twisted Tails takes place after the events of patch 5.3, several weeks after the Scions’ return to the Source. The story focuses on the new — and yet all too familiar — relationship between Raphail Somnalune, Warrior of Light, and G’raha Tia. Inspired by the “OTP meme” making the rounds on Tumblr.

    Just a few short questions, they said. How could such a simple, ordinary thing be difficult for the greatest power couple in the realm? It’s even off the record! When it comes to the Mythril Eye and its insatiable search for the extraordinary, nothing is ever so simple for a pair of heroes with such a long and storied history. And yet there is no horizon that Raphail and G’raha cannot cross together. That is, if they can remember that there is a reporter in the room in the first place.

    Summary

    Memoirs of a Miqo'te is an extensive (ongoing) exploration of the backstory of Raphail Somnalune, the FFXIV Warrior of Light. The story cuts back and forth between post-Heavensward “current” segments and past segments, showing Raphail’s growth and change over his life and the course of his journeys in Eorzea. The events of Stormblood and Shadowbringers are not covered in this story.

    As the war between dragon and man winds down in Ishgard, Raphail finds himself eager to focus on new horizons. However, the Mythril Eye has other plans for him. Lilisu Lisu, one of Uldah’s finest scholars (and recent hire for the Eye) steps onto the scene, ready to pry the truth of the so-called legend’s past from his lips at any cost. But as her interview proceeds, Raphail’s tale becomes more than just her job: it becomes her reason for telling stories in the first place.

    Summary

    Open Sesame takes place after the events of patch 5.3, and focuses on Raphail Somnalune, Warrior of Darkness, as he journeys deep into the Crystal Tower to find G’raha Tia and awaken him from his long slumber.

    Ever since he first met G’raha Tia, Raphail knew he would be in for a grand adventure -- but he could never have guessed that it would take two stars, several lifetimes, and the sacrifice of the one he loved most in order to see it through. With Norvrandt at peace and G’raha’s soul (quite literally) in his hands, the adventure he wanted most lies before him. And this time, no door on any star is going to stop him from fulfilling G’raha’s most beautiful dream.

    Summary

    Night at the Pendants takes place shortly after the events in The Grand Cosmos dungeon, and focuses on the deepening relationship forged between the Crystal Exarch and Raphail Somnalune, the Warrior of Darkness.

    Summary

    Once Upon A Time focuses on the moment after Raphail Somnalune, Norvrandt’s victorious Warrior of Darkness, steps through the portal back to the Source after the final battle concludes — and realizes that he’s made a terrible mistake.

    Raphail’s long, painful journey to the First comes to its inevitable, bittersweet end. Swept along against his will by the urgency of carrying news to and from the Source, he resigns himself to the necessity of leaving his friends behind, perhaps for quite some time. But with every step he takes, the words he failed to say to his oldest, dearest friend weigh heavier on his battered soul. It is not long before he turns back, determined to speak both his mind and his heart once and for all.

    Summary

    Child's Play is a short story focusing on a quiet moment immediately prior to the events of the Shadowbringers main story quest “The Wheel Turns.”

    The Pendants’ Manager of Suites has always been a consummate professional when it comes to the hospitality business. After all, no other job can afford him the luxury of spying on every citizen of the Crystarium and plausible deniability at the same time. And when an important, unexpected guest arrives at the Pendants, seeking a quiet place for a little privacy, he can’t help the urge to put his expert skills to the test — even if getting caught could clip his wings forever.
